And just like that, it's a Blog-A-Versary! This blog has been in existence for 10 years. Hard to imagine it's been that long. I am completely self-taught at this process and have learned a LOT over these 10 years.
Each year I get them bound by Blog2Print so I have a complete set of the posts, minus the comments, those aren't included:
I started when I realized I enjoyed reading blogs from quilters far away and was learning a lot from them. Usually short posts, always something interesting, I thought I could do that too.
The first post was published December 31, 2011--find it here: Out With the Old... It ends with "Welcome to my world..."
It is mostly about my quilting journey and a place to share what I've learned over almost 40 years of quiltmaking. Occasionally, family things are included, like the wonderful Stella and Sam:
|Family Vacation in the Woods October 2021|
|Christmas Day 2021--hold still!|
We are approaching 2000 followers, through Bloglovin' (my Favorite way to follow blogs), Feedly, Follow It and Google Followers. If you are NEW, I welcome you and hope you find interesting content here. If you have been here since the beginning, I sincerely THANK YOU! And you don't have to FOLLOW the blog to see it, you can always come looking for it each Sunday and Wednesday when I usually post.
TWO TIPS about this Blog:
1. The Search Box on the upper left is your friend--type in a keyword like Studio to see all the posts I have made about my studio and how I set it up and/or rearranged it.
2. The Tabs across the top are there to help you. TUTORIALS shows a number of posts made to teach specific things or in answer to a Reader's request for specific posts--take a look on that tab to see what is currently there.
Come along on my Joyful Journey as I share tips and tricks, ideas and thoughts, as we travel this path together. While some of the posts pertain to the 2022 Block of the Month quilt for The Quilt Show, I hope the content is educational enough for those who are not making that quilt--this one has lots of applique, mine done by machine, while the pattern is done by hand.
When we hit 2000, there will be a great giveaway--so tell your friends to join us here.
Here's to another 10 years!
